Avengers: Infinity War Super Bowl Commercial Is Pure Marvel Insanity

Ok, this is getting out of hand. Super Bowl 2018 keeps dropping insane trailers and it appears that Marvel didn’t want to be left out, so they treated us to the Infinity War TV spot. While Black Panther is one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2018, Infinity War is the most anticipated movie of 2018. The hype surrounding this movie is unparalleled, which was proven when the first trailer broke YouTube records for the most amount of views in a 24-hour period and is still the most watched trailer in YouTube history.

The TV spot for Infinity War is basically a shortened version of the original trailer that was released back in October of last year, and that is definitely not a bad thing. We still have some waiting to do and we don’t need to see a ton more footage. Marvel and the Russo Brothers have been masterfully promoting the movie and holding back on sharing new footage. The tactic angers a certain faction of fans, but it will pay off in the end when moviegoers are treated to a spoiler-free experience.

Marvel first unveiled footage from the mighty Infinity War in July during the D23 Expo and again during San Diego Comic-Con, which nearly started a riot in both instances. Fans at home who were not lucky enough to be in attendance at either event had to wait until October to see any footage at all, which was a pretty dark time for hardcore Marvel fans. The footage began to take on mythical status and some of the scenes that were shown in the initial footage was not shown in the recent trailer, so fans are still freeing out to a certain extent.

Josh Brolin and Kevin Feige are promising that the true power of Thanos will be revealed within the first 5 minutes of Infinity War, which has led to some speculation about the fate of Thor‘s brother Loki. In the clip, you can see Loki handing over the Tesseract, but Thor is later seen alone, discovered by the Guardians of the Galaxy. Some casualties are to be expected in Infinity War and the still untitled Avengers 4, so Loki could very well end up not making it out of the first movie alive. This is speculation at this time, but it seems logical.

Infinity War is all set to hit theaters on May 4th, and as previously noted, the hype is off of the charts. Marvel could probably go the whole rest of the time between now and the release of the movie without promotion of any kind and still have a monster success at the box office. Thankfully, they continue to tease us with some little morsels of new footage. While we wait to see the true power of Thanos, you can check out the brand-new Infinity War TV spot that made its debut during the Super Bowl below, courtesy of Marvel Studios.

Are John Cena and Nikki Bella Back Together?

Just over a month ago we revealed that WWE Superstars John Cena and Nikki Bella broke up ( you can click here to find out why Nikki Bella broke up with John Cena.)

Since their break-up both John Cena and Nikki Bella have been on a media frenzy, one for her reality TV show, and the other for his blockbuster movies.

John Cena has made it clear in these interviews, that he will stop at nothing to win Nikki Bella back, and it looks like it actually worked.

John Cena and Nikki Bella are finally back on the road to reconciliation!

A source told us that “they’re basically back together.”

“They both got a wake-up call once they canceled the wedding, and they both realized they could fix what was broken,” the source revealed.

“They never stopped talking,” a source told People Magazine. “Other than the actual wedding weekend, when they took some space, they have been talking.”

John had made it clear on NBC’s “Today” show that he wanted to have a family with Nikki and still wanted to marry her. If you watch Total Divas or Total Bella’s than you already know that this is exactly what Nikki wanted to hear.

“He has poured his heart out to her, and she was more than ready to take him back once she heard what she needed to hear,” the source from People Magazine added. “He’s been saying and doing all the right things.”

As seen below, TMZ spotted the couple in San Diego over the weekend, and it looks like we may see the power couple together again real soon for good!

Andy Serkis’ ‘Mowgli’ Trailer: A Darker Look At ‘The Jungle Book’

Andy Serkis’ ‘Mowgli’ Trailer: A Darker Look At ‘The Jungle Book’

With this morning’s trailer debut of Andy Serkis’ Mowgli, we now have a trailer for every major Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc. release for 2018 except for Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born and James Wan’s Aquaman. I’m guessing we’ll get a Star Is Born trailer (the film opted to forgo Cannes in favor of the more Oscar-friendly Fall festival circuit) attached to Ocean’s 8 in early June. That Aquaman trailer will drop, I dunno, sometime next month with Incredibles 2 or Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom or with July’s Ant-Man and the Wasp just before SDCC?

Either way, this darker, PG-13 variation on Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is going to have to justify itself 2.5 years after Disney beat them to the punch with a pretty acclaimed and $996 million-grossing version of the iconic story.  Yes, this one is presumably more faithful to the original book than the Disney toon, the 1994 Stephen Sommers actioner or Jon Favreau’s animated/live-action hybrid from 2016. But at the end of the day, it’s still another live-action/animated action drama set in the same general world and stemming from the same source material.

It’ll be an uphill battle, even if this does turn out to be essentially a Jungle Book movie with the tone, mood and flavoring of Matt Reeves’ recent Planet of the Apes sequels. To be fair, this looks pretty spectacular from a purely visual point-of-view. And the animal cast, including Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Eddie Marsan and Naomie Harris among others, is pretty impressive if not quite as conventionally star-studded as Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Walken and Idris Elba. If not for the fact that we just had a variation on this movie from a different studio two years ago, this one would probably be looked at as a much bigger deal.

But this isn’t 1998 where audiences necessarily want two loose copies of the same movie in a short period of time. Heck, even in 2013 there was only room for one “Die Hard in the White House” movie, as the underrated but overbudgeted White House Down fell to the cheaper and nastier Olympus Has Fallen. Of course, a 2.5-year difference is different than a six-month (or less) span between movies. So will audiences feel that enough time has passed in between Jungle Book movies, even if this one does look pretty neat and does feel closer in spirit to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes than Walt Disney’s (occasionally somber and arthouse-ish) Jungle Book adaptation?
